Finally dry and sunny days are in the forecast! In the near term we are still dealing with flooding concerns, especially across southern Kentucky, and very windy conditions. Flood warnings will remain in effect through Monday afternoon. Around the Cumberland River will be an area to watch. The Wolf Creek Dam has increased its water release. Additional flooding will likely occur. As for the wind, the Wind Advisory expires this evening but gusty conditions will continue tonight. The wind will continue to become lighter Monday.

Meanwhile, the news we have all been waiting for… we will string together three completely dry days. Temperatures will be on the mild side and the sun will shine through mid-week. Rain chances hold off until late Thursday. This should give most areas enough time to dry out. Scattered rain showers will be around to close out the work week. This appears to be a mostly light to moderate rain event, and shouldn’t be as persistent. March will come in like a lion. Not only are we tracking those late-week shower chances, but also the potential for a rain/snow mix on Saturday as colder seeps into the Commonwealth. The end of the latest 8 Day StormTracker Forecast is looking more winter-like than spring-like.
